I went to Bobby C's for a family dinner to celebrate my son graduating from college. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable and the food delicious. The service was fast and efficient, but we did not feel like we were rushed. This restaurant has a great view of the Port of Darlington with a lovely patio, weather permitting. Something for...

We love meeting up at this hidden little gem. A bit out of the way, so if you don't know it's there, you would miss it. The views are beautiful as your sitting in the deck over looking the pier and the docked boats. Great staff, very knowledgable and friendly. Prices are fair, the portions are large and the food...

We stopped in for a drink and set up on the large patio overlooking the marina and water. It was a sunny day and it was just great to sit out and enjoy the view.

My wife and I were at Bobby C's location last evening for Sunday night dinner. We both had prime rib special ($16.49). The beef (one medium rare and other medium) were good, as well as baked potato. But the accompanying vegetable medley was obviously from a frozen food bag and very over done. Really watery mush. The outdoor patio area... More

Very disappointing......flies everywhere, dirty drinking glass and the service was horrendous ......how can the waitress walk away empty handed and leave a table full of dirty dishes? Pathetic! Will not be returning.

The food is good and cater to your taste, ( I have food allergies ). The service is good and the place is very large, we received our meal fairly quickly and was perfectly cooked to our liking.

If you are a local you know about this place but if you are in the area or driving by Liberty St exit, by stop in. Great burgers and sides. Cool drinks and a really nice patio. Nice shade and some good spots in the sun. Very rustic with a view to the marina. Staff is very friendly, food service... More
